To call it a mere sitcom would be an insult. AbFab follows the rich lives and misadventures of Patsy (Joanna Lumley) and Edina (series creator Jennifer Saunders), two shallow, trendy, self-absorbed hedonists showing us that youth is wasted on the young. Ugly, and wickedly funny - a godsend compared to the relentlessly moral, rote, and well-scrubbed fare of American television. It shows what magic can result when creative folks are freed from the assembly-line dictates of U.S. TV.
